D-Type Preamp

The D-Type Preamp Pedal is a fully hand-wired D-style preamp circuit, not an overdrive pedal.  The D-Type can be used in front of your favorite amp (or whatever they give you in the back line!) to give you the tone you’re used to anywhere.  It can also be used to drive the Power Amp In (Effects Loop Return) of any amp.  The D-Type Preamp Pedal takes other pedals well, and works well with your pedal board in front of it (just as you would the preamp section of your amp).  It is small, powerful and versatile, but most importantly, it IS a D-style circuit – no corners cut, no printed circuit boards, no wave soldered caps, no transistors, no op-amps – this is a real hand-wired point-to-point preamp in a small package!

TESTIMONIALS

“…the preamp sounded amazing. It’s like a work of art.” — Phil

I’ve had this idea for years – why mess around with solid state pedals if you can have your entire D tone stack, preamp and controls in a small package – all tube – all point to point!  The Malin D-Type Preamp Pedal is a fully hand wired point-to-point boutique preamp that embodies all the D-style tone, because it has all the real circuitry. Being hand build, each component is chosen, measured and correctly oriented and care is taken to route wires the way they should be in a D-style amp.

“…Wow. The harmonics are stunning…” — D. K.

Just like any “ODS” style amp, the D-Type Preamp Pedal has the controls you’d expect.  Jazz/Rock, 3-way Bright Switch, Mid-Boost, and the full tone stack (Treb, Mid, Bass).  Pre-amp Volume and Master operate as they should, both in Clean or O/D settings, and the Overdrive “Drive” and “Level” controls are just as they should be.

“…an absolute home run as far as I’m concerned…” — Robert
